Although I do not consider myself a “girly girl”. I do love ruffles, lace, floral, and polka dots. I think it’s all about feeling feminine and chic. If I had to classify my style, I’d say its boho feminine. I really do dress for comfort first and that’s really important to me. When I saw this TopShop ruffle top, (now only $39.99!) I had to get it and I had to get it in the black/white stripe too! It’s so me! I have worn both with so many different combos already – white button down collared shirt underneath, or tucked into a high-waist skirt or with sweatpants for an athleisure look. (more…)
I like to think that I am ahead of the trends. I look at Parisian It Girl Fashion street style and read a ton of European Fashion blogs and incorporate what I like into my look. Usually those girls have the trends way before they become popular over here. Because lets face it, once they become so popular over here, you are way over it and move on to the next wave.
I hope everyone had a nice relaxing Christmas if you celebrated. For N and I, our holidays are filled with hopping from one household to the next (to Nico’s aunt’s house and then to my parent’s house for Christmas this year). We used to have to split up the day with dinner at one house and dessert at the other, but this year just worked out so perfect that one started earlier and was slowing down right when the other one was beginning! It is a lot of energy to balance everything out, but we want to see as many people we can on the holidays, especially our family. (more…)
With all this outdoor snow and indoor heat, my hair has been feeling rather dry lately! Over the weekend, after my shower, I smothered some of this Argan Oil Hair Mask all over my hair and let it sit while Nico and I picked out a movie to watch.
After 15 minutes, I rinsed it out and already felt my hair to be much smoother and I’m sure healthier since it got some solid deep conditioning it desperately needed.
Not to mention, the product smells AMAZING! You can even use it as a daily conditioner, just leave it on for 10-15 mins once a week to get the deep condition.
I am sure by now most of you have heard about the new beauty craze. It’s called 3D Lash mascara! I was skeptical myself. I mean I have tried Sephora’s “best seller” extension fiber mascara and all I got was a clump of white specks.
However, this mascara has BLACK fibers.. genius, right? I don’t know why people made white fibers to begin with? Anyways, if you know me, you know I wear minimal makeup and the only time I wear more makeup is if someone is applying it for me! ahhh those runway days…. BUT if I can apply this mascara and make it look like I have full amazing lashes- then you better believe you can too! This is my first try – I hear it gets easier and more amazing with a little bit of practice… and practice I will —for all the Holiday parties I got going on =)

Just tried this out and I took it with me to Mexico for the wedding and I was able to get my hair done really fast. The video is my second time ever using it (and my first attempt at taking a beauty video), so I will admit it takes a little getting used to (the tool and my bad video), but before I became an expert, I wanted to just show you my first experiences with the InstaWave and how I still got great results!
Sidenote: What are being using to take those great beauty videos? I know lighting is probably one of the most important factors…sigh
